> There are a lot of 1851 census transcripts and indexes out there, 
but not easily searchable by occupation as Anne says - and not always 
that reliable, either. Bleins is clearly an error for Blews in the 
1851 for Birmingham - and on the 1881 census the name of William 
Warskitt (the works manager who lived in the foundry house at 
Whitechapel) has been wrongly indexed as Masskett
> CP

It could be as bad as the 1901 Census Index though - went looking for 
a surname IVEY and found it as FREY.
